: in a move that is beneath the dignity of the oval office, it appears that the obama administration changed the monthly jobs report for political gain. after he was crushed at the denver debate, the labor department announced that the unemployment rate dropped magically to 7.8% in september. and the job registered more than 800,000. that's one of the biggest one-month jumps in 29 years. let me say this one more time. the biggest jump since 1983, convenient, considering that barack obama finds himself in the midst of perhaps the worst political week of his life. while the president claims that the unexpected news is a sign that america is, quote, moving forward, there are a growing number of skeptics that are crying foul. chief is the former g.e. ceo jack welch. unbelievable job numbers. they can't debate so they change the numbers. he appeared earlier today on "your world." >> these numbers don't smell right when you think about where the economy is right now. every economist predicted roughly 90,000 to 120,000. this economy doesn't feel like the employment improved this level. it is just -
what number the obama administration gets flashed up on a tv screen, they know they're out of work, and they wanted to see if they're comfortable with the challenger. not only were they comfortable, they'll keep being comfortable. the reason romney is going to keep doing very well in the debates is because you never get to see him. the media tells us, you know, gives us snippets, paraphrase, in other words what he was trying to say is. let's see what he said. >> sean: if you want to look at polls -- we're still 29 days out. four weeks in a campaign we all agree is an eternity, but pew, battleground, politico, rasmussen. it goes deeper than that. romney is up in florida in a poll, up in virginia in a poll. >> even in ohio. >> sean: dead even in ohio. it's a two-point race in pennsylvania. it's a two-point -- >> well -- >> sean: wait a minute. it's a one-point race in wisconsin. this now is putting obama in a position where he has to defend, defend, defend, defend, defend, at least, you know, six, seven states that he won back in 2008. >> this is all being carried on mitt romney's pe
? is it president obama's policiless or go back to the bush administration and their policiless . i have an opinion that said largely president obama's fail add policiless >> going back to the bill clinton premise. no one could have fixed it in four years. >> that is flat out wrong. >> it may be. but that is very effective argument. >> but we have short memories because ronald reagan fixed a worse recession with his policies in '81 and he was fixing that problem and fixed a terrible recession and brought american back to prosperity. that is all my opinion. >> brian: we'll discuss this at 9:20. >> at length. >> brian: what will you wear for the debate tonight? >> stop it. >> steve: coordinating your wardrobe now. no, padded seats like a dog. >> brian: great to surf with. this is a very serious story. americans murdered in lebia, just bumps in the road and president's recent comments about the benghazi terrorist attacks has our next guest outraged. he is a former navy seal. >> is the bro-mance over. is ben affleck having buyer's remorse. >> oh, no. call the hollywood reporter. ♪ ♪ there's the sig
. bill: has the obama administration taken a position on this. stkphapb. >> president obam on this dan? >> president obama has never been in favor of marijuana usage or recreational use. but the white house and the justice department have been silent on these ballot initiatives. eric holder was sent a letter urging him to speak out. he has not. we've been trying for a weak to get a comment and we are still waiting. >> it is shocking that attorney general holder, that the director, but most of all that k about this. of the united look, it's about health, it's about safety, it's about the future of our country. >> a big question, if it passes in one or two of these states is will the fed step in and enforce federal drug laws because of course bill it will still be illegal according to the federal government even if it's legal in a couple of these dates. bill: thank you. dan springer is on that story in the state of washington, seattle. patti ann: governor romney's speech on foreign policy is under an hour away. it comes on the heels of a big week for the g.o.p. what do they hope to accom
that is abandoned by the obama administration and it is important to support our allies like israel and support the opposition in syria and obviously touch on the libyan issue with regard to the benghazi attack and the death of four americans including the death of ambassador stevens and our role in the middle east, not being an observer but an active participant . making foreign policy work for the united states. >> steve: you will see the next debate on foreign policy. since the debate debacle for the president they blamed everybody. blaming mitt romney for being a liar . blamed jimm lehrer and even the guy who prepared the president. john kerry. he wants to be secretary of state and so he didn't get in the president's face. there is an item apparently the obama staff knew 10 minutes before it was all over on wednesday night that it was a debacle and convened a conference call and decided to go after romney and hit on big bird and all new ads to have a come back. >> gretchen: apparently the adpeople stayed up all might to have an adto go right away. when president obama was in hollywood . he
administration. >> sean: now according to "the new york times," the obama campaign actually thinks that biden will give them the comeback they valle desperately. if they're counting on joe biden to save the day, maybe they're counting on the wrong guy. the author of the new book "here come the black helicopters: u.n. goble governance and loss of freedom," former clinton advisor dick morris. same biden who said he was going to raise taxes by a trillion dollars, 500,000 jobs a month are coming, and 2012 fewer jobs than 2011 fewer than 2010. is that the guy that's going to save the day? >> well, i think they should change the format, sean. instead of biden against ryan, it should be biden against biden. that way i think we'll get a fair exposition. this isn't two men auditioning for the job, even somebody judging as to whether biden deserves re-election. in this case, it's kind of like the spokesman for romney against the spokesman for obama. paul ryan is a uniquely articulate person with a uniquely profound understanding of what's going on in this country. i believe he's going to run rings arou
of american influence, which is a policy that the obama administration has pursued quite consciously, and we're now seeing the effects of it. the examples you give, the determination to withdraw from afghanistan on a fixed timetable that's basically turning the country back over to the taliban. the inability to stop iran's pursuit of nuclear weapons or its continued financing and arming of terrorists in the region and around the world. all of these things put together give a picture of a weak and declining america. i think what governor romney was trying to say today is that we're best able to prevent conflict and protect american interests through a strong american presence, not a weak and declining american presence. >> sean: yeah, i thought that was interesting. if we don't lead, the wrong people will be leading in the world. i think one of the most disgraceful events that have happened, two of them back-to-back, when the president said he couldn't meet with president netanyahu when he was in new york to speak before the united nations. "well, if i speak to him, i have to speak to 10 peop
the obama administration. what do you make of this, chris? >> well, you're exactly right. obama had a bad first debate and you don't want to have two bad debates in a row. i don't think that biden will. you know, it's interesting, i interviewed paul ryan last week and talked to him about, about biden and i said what do you think of biden? you've been studying him obviously and prepping for him. he said, look, he's a very experienced guy and been in this for 40 years and you're not going to throw him off his game. and i said, yeah, how about the gaffes? he says he makes those in exte extempraneous on the stump and i don't think that he was spinning me, a strong determined biden. what's fascinating is the contrast between these guys, an old school liberal in the case of biden and a young gun conservative in the case of paul ryan and i mean, these guys couldn't be further apart in their outlook on the government and what they think are the solutions for the country over the next four years. >> and the way they speak, too, right, guys? and paul ryan we talking to huckabee, does paul ryan run
on the obama administration's handling of the deadly attack in labia. romney headed overseas this summer with a few missteps in the obama campaign seized on those mistakes. >> reckless, immaturish that's what they called his tour to israel, po -- israel, poland and israel. >> reporter: now, new polls show that mitt romney received a boost from the debate, essentially leaving this race in a tie. >>> the vice president candidates are getting ready for their debates. democrats are hoping that joe biden does better against paul ryan than president obama did with mitt romney last week. >> i think paul ryan is gonna did a great job. i think that joe biden is a very good key baiter. >> analysts say that there's pressure on ryan to show he's potential protesters presidential material in his first debate. >> early voting begins today. if you want to vote today, head to the offices today but most of them are closed because of columbus day. >>> ven sway sway lan president -- inventoryian venezuelan presidential hugo chavez ran the presidency again. he's the longest-running president in latin-ameri
has fluctuated during president obama's administration. you can see that sharp rise in the beginning when we were still in a recession. and then a gradual slow lowering over the last couple of years. the unemployment news comes as we get word that americans borrowed $18 billion more in august than the month before. much of that borrowing coming in the form of credit cards and student loans. wall street reaction somewhat mixed today. the dow gaining 35 and closing at its highest level in nearly five years on this friday. the nasdaq dropped 13. the s&p 500 was flat. right now, republic candidate for president, governor mitt romney is speaking at an event in st. petersburg, florida. we understand is he going to be touching on the economy. let's watch for just a moment. >> the participation of our adults in the workforce were the same as at the time that he got elected. our unemployment rate would be about 11%. people in this country are having a hard time finding a job. people in this country are having a hard time making ends meet even if they do have a job. so it's time to have someon
.s. officials as an eruption of anger at an anti-islam film. the obama administration has since reversed that appraisal and now calls it a well coordinated terrorist attack. but questions have mounted over the shifting assessments. and today two republican congressmen, oversight committee chairman darrell issa of california and jays leveled new allegations. in a letter to secretary of state clinton, they charged washington rejected multiple requests for security improvements at been gas emission. they base their assertions on unidentified sources described as multiple u.s. federal government officials. the state department spokeswoman said the secretary would respond in writing this very day. >> her response is going to be relatively succinct today, as i said, expressing her complete commitment to work with the congress to get fully to the bottom of this. but i don't anticipate she'll be able to answer the specific questions today >> warner: the two congressmen say their committee will hold a hearing next wednesday on the libya attack. meanwhile the f.b.i. has sent a team to libya to det
the obama administration on foreign policy yesterday. during a speech in virginia he claimed that the risk of conflict in the middle east is higher now than it was when president obama took office, and he urge add more aggressive u.s. role in the syrian civil war. >>> meantime president obama campaigning on the west coast sounded an urgent note in his appeal to voters. he told supporters in san francisco they must be almost obsessive in getting out the vote. the president and mitt romney returned to the crucial state of ohio later today to campaign in that critical state. >>> first lady michelle obama is sharing a bit of what goes on behind the closed doors of the white house. in a "nightline" interview she told abc's cynthia mcfadden she rarely steps foot in fact in the west wing and steers clear of trying to influence her husband's policies, instead sticking to her own causes like fighting childhood obesity. mrs. obama also talked about how comfortable the president is around women. >> this is one of the things i love about barack. he is so used to having strong women in his life. you kn
the problems for the middle class and that the obama administration has started to pull it out by its boot straps. and so the obama campaign just in case we didn't get that has a statement that says that the romney campaign is taking this entirely out of context. it's obviously in looking at the full transcript that joe biden was talking about the fact that the middle class was buried under failed bush policies. and of course they say romney/ryan would change all that. however, this is an opportunity, which the romney campaign is taking to say, you know what, we agree with you. the middle class has been buried and we're going to change that. imagine this as kind of the dry season in the west in the summer. and any match or any lightning strike is going to start a huge fire. and that's what's going on here the closer we get to the election. >> this is coming a day before the debate. how detrimental could this be for the obama campaign? >> i'm sure the obama campaign is thinking this is a headache they don't need. as you know in the past joe biden has given them a bunch of headaches. they li
, elizabeth. after the attack in benghazi, one of the big questions is, did the obama administration recognize the deteriorating security situation in libya? and did they do everything to protect personnel in that country? abc news has obtained this e-mail from the security department in may. that a request for a security support team, about 16 special forces soldiers, to keep a small airplane, a dc-3, to get around more easily, especially with all of the weapons, was rejected, elizabeth. >> how is the state department reacted to whether or not proper security and teams were given to the state department in libya? >> reporter: the state department says it was not a big deal. commercial flights were available at the time. and it says there's no evidence that the absence of this airplane had any affect on what happened in september. but the house, which will be holding hearings, says it's part of a pattern of officials in washington, denying requests from ambassador stevens and others in libya. >> very volatile, the four deaths in that country. jake tapper, thank you very much. >>> let's turn to
. >> it was obviously not safe to have him there and i think the state department and the obama administration really owes the american people a full, frank revelation of what they knew, when they knew it -- >> steve: before the election. >> before the election. >> gretchen: maybe it will come up in the next debate when they talk about foreign affairs. >> it should and i'm positive that mitt romney will be extremely prepared and will take it to the president, what did you know on tuesday? what did you know on wednesday or thursday? >> brian: also the town hall format. i think it works for the president. >> steve: okay. foreign affairs, i'm sure you've had a couple, geraldo. >> gretchen: whoa! that was not on the card either! that was in the book, not on the card. see you later. al gore knows exactly why the president got battered by mitt romney. did you hear this one? >> when you go to 5,000 feet -- >> exactly -- and you only have a few hours to adjust did she. >> gretchen: altitude? >> steve: the most awesome story you'll hear all day, a dog slips out of his house, starts running. where does he go?
by this -- by the administration's own calculations, 20 million people -- i guess it was cbo said it would lose their coverage under obama care and that's not going to work for my state of virginia. >> i have to say, i hope he has your ability to go without taking a breath and have things that make sense. jim, let me ask, barbara talked about mitt romney wants to talk about his tax plan. i'm sure that the president wants to talk about mitt romney's tax plan too. specifically that promise to cut taxes for everybody in a revenue-neutral way. >> well, look. i think the american people would love to hear mitt romney talk about his tax plan and share more details. because we saw in the "new york times" this morning -- well, this is a little unrelated but i still want to touch on it. that mitt romney has benefited financially from his own investments in the time he had at bain. that's something he has been telling the american people something very different on. and when it comes to his own tax plan, you know, he hasn't provided any specifics. the arithmetic just doesn't add up. paul ryan had the opportunity to spe
president reagan did in the czech republic. president obama seems to have missed that. he comes into these things late. his own administration describes him as leading by following. you don't lead by following. if you're following, you're following. that's what we see in seyria. that's what we saw in libya, in egypt. and now we see tremendous confusion on the part of this administration about what's really going on in the middle east. you look at libya, it's a scandal. i mean, what happened with libya is an absolute scandal of the b biggest proportions. i think only because the campaign is going on is it being held back. the white house, it seems to me, knew there was real danger to that ambassador. not only did they provide the security necessary, it sounds to me that they reduced the security, which is astounding. i don't know if that's true. one congressman told me that. if that's true, that's astounding. >> you saw secretary of state madeleine albright call romney speech full of platitude and free of substance. >> i'm sure the former secretary of state would say that. the re
